I wasn't sure which forum to post this in.... but I decided to put this in the main C25K forum to try and encourage all those starting out that if I can you can!!!
I'm in my late 50's ... and I've "only" been running about 2 1/2 years but I am very pleased to report that I successfully completed my "100 miles in April challenge".... well I actually ended up doing closer to 110 miles (175 km)
Having a full time job meant extending my long runs a bit as I had to average about 40k per week. I ended up running 4 Half Marathons (one each weekend), but this only got me up to about 52miles. I took each HM really steady and the rest of the miles were done extending my evening runs. Still I managed to rest for 2 days each week.
One of the reasons I wanted to do this challenge was to try and build up my running base (aerobic training) and I can certainly feel the difference after those long slow miles.
I did this via raceatyourpace.co.uk who do monthly challenges from 25 miles to 200 miles ... I received some nice bling and a great tech T-shirt for just £14.
Not sure I'll do it again next month.... but I'll certainly try to keep up the millage as best and safely as I can.
Happy running all
